So Saddam's defense lawyers are getting gunned down. More evidence that we're pretty far from having that country under control. Not that we needed it. The question must be asked: Is having this trial worth a single other death? I submit that it is not. And I understand the importance of a fair trial, but stepping into the courtroom would be like it was to walk in to see Titanic about seven years back. Everyone knows the ending, and I want my goddamned eight bucks back.
Its not that I don't want the trial to happen. I do. But it obviously cannot take place inside Iraq in its current state. Defense lawyers have asked that he be moved to a neutral country, but I seriously doubt that he could be moved without incident. This is an utterly worthless man. To risk lives on his behalf is folly.
Delay the trial as long as it takes. It's just not worth it to do it now.
